|Next-generation Kontron high-performance embedded computer COBALT system at AUSA 2014.|
Kontron, a leading global provider of Embedded Computer Technology (ECT), today announced at the 2014 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition the availability of new I/O options with its next-generation Kontron high-performance embedded computer COBALT (Computer Brick Alternative) system to help reduce development costs and streamline the time to deployment.
The highly scalable COBALT (COmputer Brick ALTernative) product family is based on the COMe module Basic & Compact form factor module (Type 6) with a specialized carrier board assembly.
The new I/O options are offered via COBALT’s advanced tightly-coupled mezzanine features, a ruggedized compact carrier board and System Interface Board (SIB). These basic modular and standards-based platform profiles match established development requirements for situational awareness, removable storage and combination processor/networking switch capabilities applicable to a wide range of ground, ship, avionics and unmanned military systems. The latest Kontron COBALT I/O options will be demonstrated at the Kontron AUSA booth #3543 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC, October 13-16, 2014.
Facilitating development, COBALT features a configurable front panel for modular I/O profile options. Enhanced I/O is achieved through 1x XMC slot, 2x mPCIe full slot or 1x mPCIe full and 2x mPCIe half. These profile slots and front I/O panel allow full support for different profile options such as ARINC 429, MIL-STD-1553, combined L2/L3 GbE switch/processor, CANbus, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, 3G/4G modem, GPS, additional Serial Ports, FPGA, A/D and more.
